And looking ahead to Autumn we have a brand new Workshop - Crochet for both Beginners and Improvers 11 and 25 September respectively from 10 am - 1230 pm £20.
The first session is ideal for complete beginners in crochet. Melanie can help you learn the basics of crochet, such as how to hold your hook and yarn comfortably, how to make a chain, a loop and double crochet. Or perhaps you are ready to take the next steps, such as reading a pattern and beginning your first crochet then the second workshop is for you.
If you have your own plain double knit yarn and a 4mm hook do bring it along. If not our tutor will bring materials (basic hooks and yarn) for you to use on the day.
The Fernhurst Centre is an internet hub and coffee shop in the heart of Fernhurst Village, open six days a week.We offer courses on a wide range of subjects, free evening Topical Talks and a comfortable place to meet friends for coffee or relax and read the papers. The Centre is supported by a wonderful team of friendly volunteers and with superfast broadband, information about Whatís On in Fernhurst and bean to cup coffee, itís a great place to visit at any time.
Our September topical talk is 'Can I improve my memory'. The frustration of forgetting is something common to us all whatever age, whether it be names, faces, places or simple tasks. Why can we remember the lyrics to Bohemian Rhapsody but not a simple chip and pin code?
Take a trip down memory lane with us as we look at techniques for remembering, using the examples of numbers, names and book plot lines that are easy to employ in day to day life.
We will look at the brain and explore the relationship between creativity and logic, discover how it is that we learn and establish what type of learner we are and whether the way we were taught at school affected our capacity to learn in later life? Join us on September 10th to explore the inner workings of memory.
